David Alexander Dr. Carson Medley “You will never find a feminist in a ship wreck, house fire, or hostage situation. No matter how much women argue that they deserve the same compensation men do, they will never put themselves on equal footing with a man. When there is a hostage situation, who do they bargain for first? Women and children. What the hell? Bullets hurt me too! I look at it this way: If there is a house fire and its women and children first, I deserve the dollar more per hour as an endangerment fee,” Bill Burr once described as laudable reason for the gender wage disparity. Fortunately, not many agree with this argument supporting the rampant unfair compensation for women. There are some key factors that caused women’s pay to be 23.5% less then men, according to 2004 statistics. A factor involved in the pay discrepancy is maternity leave; women are not paid for the time that they take off to birth and foster a child. There is also a difference in men and women’s choice occupational choice, not only in field of work, but years and hours worked. Men are more likely to be compensated more for working “dangerous jobs” – the 94% of on job deaths are male. Lastly, men tend to get more credit for their work and are viewed as more competent; this leads to promotions and higher pay. The Benetton Group, a clothing company and human rights advocator, is using its artistic medium to draw attention to hot button issues.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
